Complimentary Consultation: Room to Breathe provides a one hour consultation in your home to assess your specific needs and challenges.  This is an informal and nonjudgmental tour of your space and a great chance for us to meet each other.  You can feel at ease as we hold your personal information confidential and respect your belongings. Please remember… resist any temptation to tidy before we arrive, as it’s beneficial we view your space as you use it.

Once we exceed your expectations in the consultation stage, you’ll be ready to move forward with the next step.  We’ll determine your budget and arrange a plan of action that best suits you.  Then the fun begins. 

Organizing Sessions: On day one, we’ll show up on time, sleeves rolled up – excited and ready to work hard.  With your help we’ll establish project parameters and work with you on purging decisions and functionality of space.  Beyond decision-making, your level of involvement is up to you. 

We follow a proven method when organizing to stay focused and efficient. Throughout the entire process, we strive to motivate you and offer helpful tips and information for you to develop sustainable new habits once we’re gone.  Plus we want you to get us to do the things you may not enjoy doing - we'll build your Ikea furniture, deliver and set up your clothing consignment account, and even help prepare your tax files for the accountant. We also do enjoy a little shopping, so with our professional organizing knowledge and experience we’ll find the best containers and storage supplies for your space.  

At the end of the project, we'll invite you for a final walk through to ensure there's no loose ends, to make sure you know where to find everything once we're gone, and to remind you of any tips for ease of upkeep. Why not bring along the whole family, and if you have one, the house cleaner and nanny too.  This is a wonderful opportunity for everyone in your home to be on the same page with a fresh start.

Post Project: At the end of each day, or end of project, we’ll happily haul away and find the best home for your unwanted items, so you’re left with a finished product and peace of mind. Although we work to ensure that your systems and newly organized spaces work for you long term, we are delighted to schedule regular maintenance sweeps if you find you just don’t have the time.

Be sure to ask us if we can recommend a Furniture Re-upholsterer, House Cleaner, Designer, Stager, Children's Artwork Archiver, Workplace Productivity Ninja and more. We have a great troupe of people to call on when needed.
